    I've been heating my home with the P68 for 5 years and have been extremely pleased with it's performance. I clean it regularly.
    I know there are a number of moving parts in the unit. My question is does it need to be lubricated? If so what lubricant should be used, and what (and how) should I lubricate?

    I just got my Harman P68 installed today. Since the firebox in my fireplace is no longer usable I had them vent it up the existing chimmney. They still had to use the 3 1/2 inch pipe. All I can say is it does put out some heat.

    The painfull part was the price. But I hope it saves me money in heating bills this winter since I use propane to heat my home. The Harman I hope will heat my home without the use of my furnace. But if not it will be a great backup.

    Friends thought I was crazy for spending almost 3 g's back in 2004, but at this point the stove has paid for itself. I got a good deal on 5 tons (delivered this past Monday) of pellets, and I'm guessing I'll be ahead of the game by the end of this winter. I bought the stove to save $$$, but we all love it during the heating season, and it serves as a giant night light in our lower level.
    Good luck with yours.

    I have a P61A which si smaller but similar in design. Nothing comes to mind in terms of lubricating, but there are a number of areas that should be cleaned that are a bit out of the way; for example, the distribution blower fins, the trap for fines, the ignitor chamber, pulling and cleaning the ESP probe, etc. I ama abit of a fanatic about keeping the stove clean on the basis that a stove does not malfunction because it is clean....
